This February, with the restoration of the façade, the reconstruction of Hotel Bristor, one of the symbols of the capital of Serbia from the beginning of the 20th century, when Savamala was the center of high-class life in Belgrade, began, announced the company Belgrade Waterfront.
– This masterpiece of the famous Serbian architect Nikola Nestorovic is returning to the map of the most prestigious places in Belgrade and getting ready to shine the way it hasn’t for decades. Sixteen top-quality artists, as well as three of the remaining five ornament craftsmen in Serbia, are hired for the restoration of the façade of the cult Belgrade hotel, which is now located within the Belgrade Waterfront – the announcement says.
It is added that the works on the reconstruction of Bristol are done by the construction company KOTO
According to Blagoje Mickovic, the director of ALP
Inzenjering, which is a subcontractor on the project, the main task of the restorers is to preserve the original façade architecture and for it to be brought back to its original state as much as possible.
– The restoration of Bristol began with the cleaning of the façade, and then the experts determined the state of it. The parts which had been ruined or broken were replaced with new ones, and those that had merely eroded, but are in good condition, were restored – Mickovic says and emphasizes that the works are slowly being brought to a close.
